The next meeting of this ship-model society will be held on Saturday 6th June, 2009 in the Church Hall of:
The Church of Our Lady & St. Michael, Grimsargh, Lancashire.
The meeting commences at 1100, breaks for lunch 1230 – 1400 & meeting closes about 1600.
Guests, wives/partners and accompanied children welcome.
There is plenty of free parking in the Church grounds with disabled parking directly outside the door of the Church Hall.
Toilet facilities available. Coffee & tea-making facilities also available.
At lunch time, some members remain in the hall taking their own sandwiches, whilst other go to a local public house for lunch.
All types of model building it catered for ranging from plastic kits to the most superb plank-on-frame models. Members & guest are encouraged to bring models along either competed or part-built. All skill levels are also catered for & some of our members are simply “interested” in the subject, but do not actively build.

Hope to see some of you there.

Hi Barry,
Thanks, we had a good day.  22 members, no guests.    I joined in 1993, so we will not have met.    Only a few of the 1993 members left now, but we still have about 60 members, average attendance 25.

The publication you refer to is only available to NWMS members as far as I know. I will send you the e-mail address of the secretary who will be able to advise you more fully.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.

Colin Bishop - Website Editor
